Now that the weather is nice and warm, a lot of people are out in their yards, soaking up the sun and tending their gardens. Whether you’re planning to live in Clay for years to come or are thinking of selling Clay property, beautiful landscaping is a big boost for any home. It’s so nice to come home and see a lovely garden or sit outside and enjoy the fragrances of the flowers. Good landscaping also increases the curb appeal of a house, which can help it to sell faster and for more money.
Add a Veggie Garden and Fruit Trees to Increase the Value of Clay Property
Take your landscaping to the next level by planting an herb and vegetable garden. Many herbs make great ground cover, including rosemary, lavender, and sage. These plants are very tough and grow into attractive flowering bushes. Purple cabbage and kale both look very pretty, even in a front yard.
In most neighborhoods, you’ll want to keep the bigger veggie beds in the backyard. Raised beds delineate the kitchen garden from the rest of the landscaping. They also make it easier to protect plants from pests. Tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelons, and zucchini are all easy to grow. Consider putting in fruit trees, too. These provide great produce for the home and also make the house more attractive to potential buyers.
If you’re thinking of adding appliances, keep on the healthy theme by putting in Energy Star rated models. You should also consider adding a steam oven. These are becoming a popular appliance for re-heating food, as they help to preserve more vitamins and minerals and don’t require as much fat and oil for grains and proteins. A well organized and pretty kitchen is a great selling point for any house and will make preparing healthy meals to eat as a family much easier.
